Only a matter of urgent Bravo family business could bring Prince Rule to America. And he wasn't leaving until he met Sydney O'Shea...

...who happened to be the mother of Rule's toddler son. Rule didn't expect the firestorm of desire the regal Texas attorney stirred in him. With Montedori law decreeing that he wed or lose everything, the captivated prince came up with the pe

I was not that impressed with the book, the first meeting between the h/H didn't gel for me because I am kind of a paranoid person and he just walks up to her and she goes to lunch with him. Within 48 hours of meeting they are hitched. He needs to get married before he turns 33, she is a great lawyer has had two failed relationships and used a donor to have a kid and feels he is the one, doesn't matter that she has to move and that she has a child.

The kid is the hero's and the reason he contacte

Very good book. I liked Rule, even though he was keeping the secret of his fatherhood from Sydney. When he met Sydney he was only intending to check up on her son, then leave her alone. He never expected that he and Sydney would be so intensely attracted to each other. He saw this as fate, so went ahead and proposed marriage. Sydney was leery at first, since she had had two relationships that had failed due to the men being untrustworthy. She occasionally got the impression that Rule was hiding ...more

This novel was amazingly well written and a complete joy to read. The characters were well thought out and had incredible background information.

The hero donated his sperm three years ago and the heroine got pregnant via sperm bank. After three years the hero needed to see that his child was well off and cared for but he fell deeply in love with the heroine and lied to her, not admitting that her son was indeed his son as well. Quickly their relationship progressed and they were married. When a

Prince Rule of Montedori has come to America to meet Sydney O'Shea, the mother of his toddler son that was conceived by IVF. Just a look was all he thought he needed, confirmation that his young son and his mother were doing well, but he got way more than he bargained for.

Sydney had no idea the Prince was her son's sperm donor and once the prince saw her, it wasn't enough. He had to do whatever it took to get to know her. And once he began to know her, he had to have her an

Rule is the prince of a small European country, and a while back, he donated to a sperm bank. He found out who used the donation and had a baby, and he's only intending to check in on his child. He tracks down Sydney O'Shea, who gave birth to his child, at the mall.

Sydney is leery of men after two failed relationships. The only guy in her life is her baby boy Trevor, and she's perfectly fine with that. But when a handsome prince tracks her down at the mall and proposes marriage to her because he
A nice book goal bump.

Such an easy and sweet read. A little twist there with the whole baby daddy thing but how adorable is Rule. Nice to see a powerful and successful woman as the lead for a change even if she did fall in love with him in a heartbeat.

Well written and easy to read.

I'm a sucker for romance novels featuring babies, and Christine Rimmer seems to have a little niche for this subject. I've enjoyed a couple of her books now, and was not disappointed by this one. A pleasant story with likable characters - the plot line seemed to be pushing the envelope of plausibility a bit (even for a romance novel!), but with some suspension of reality, I enjoyed it.

The cover annoyed me - something about the proportions of the baby to the prince and the way he held him made i

I love it! I love it! I love it! Best I can say. Sydney meets her Prince. Excitement, secrets, Trev meets his Dad, and lots and lots of love. A baby born through sperm bank added.
A fairy tale weedding but a story like none other. Intriguing birth of Trevor and his Mom and then comes the Prince. The story holds lots of surprises. But true love wins through all the hardships.
Love can truly overcome issues that are hard to deal with. Struggles as husband and wife are common and yes, even a Prince h

Good book
Nice story. Rimmer tends to write extremely squishy stories, and this is one of the squishier. She seems to prefer writing glitz to angst, and I'd rather read the angst.

A pretty decent quick read when I needed one. Not a lot of character development but then you never get much in a little novella.
